Do you think the date of my Confirmation can be changed?

I am getting confirmed in a month. But i also made it to All-State for band. Unfortunately, it is the same day as confirmation. As much as i want to go, my religion is a priority. So if something is gonna have to get removed, i will have to cancel All-State. But i would still like to do both. Are there alternatives that can be done, like getting confirmed privately another day or something? I will ask my confirmation director soon, but i just want an idea of what could happen.


If a neighboring parish is having Confirmation around that time, you might be able to receive it there. Your pastor or director can check this our for you by contacting the diocese.
